Kevin-Neff-edit-0025For over 20 years I have been fortunate to have had an award-winning successful sales and marketing career that has enabled me to meet with, and work with, everyone from small businesses owners on Main Street USA, to the Secret Service of the President of the USA, and pretty much everybody in between. I have had an opportunity to co-author a best seller, appear on stage with some of the greatest business minds in the entrepreneurial world today, and have personally worked with clients from coast to coast.

And after all these years of success, the one thing that I know to be true is this. It’s now time for old school, to become the new school, taught in business school. And that’s why I am personally inviting you to come back to “school” with me, and learn how to become successful, by replacing business and marketing nonsense…with commonsense!



Business owners, entrepreneurs, and start-ups who are becoming increasingly frustrated with the marketing of their business in today’s technology driven world.

miguelMIGUEL SANCHEZ (from Los Angeles) – “No Obstacles, Just Opportunities”

Miguel Sanchez was born and raised in Mexico City and migrated to the United States at the young age of 16. Due to his age and language barriers, he could not find employment anywhere. As a last resort he began collecting cans around a restaurant in a tourist area of San Pedro, California. After repeatedly being kicked off the restaurant grounds his persistence eventually paid off as he was offered a position as  dishwasher and janitor. To Miguel, it was the opportunity he had been looking for. Because of his hard work, good ethics and dedication, he became a manager at the age of just eighteen. One year later, he was promoted to General Manager of the establishment. The parent company, “San Pedro Fish Market” has been awarded 4 Guinness World Records!

Today Miguel is a successful serial entrepreneur. With over twenty years of experience in business administration and management, Miguel’s knowledge and determination to overcome and succeed, regardless of circumstances, have made him a favorite with business owners. He has a special ability to guide anyone who chooses to the next level in their career, their business, and their life.
